No, not another rock picture. This is “the volume of a rectangular parallelepiped of a certain height and base area. I’m sure some of you know what this means. I do not. However I did like the picture in a calculus book. Part of my STEM to STEAM project. [note: Instagram wanted me to put “locomotive” instead of “project”. Oh what a sense of humor!] #parallelograms#calculus#math (of the higher sort) #parallelopiped “which in general doesn’t fill up the column of space under the surface” ... ah, I think I’ll write a story about a #biped with #four or more #parallel legs trying to keep its feet from being sucked under by ... um, #quicksand ? #mud ? #marshywater ? #alligators — since I seem to have a newfound interest in alligators and #parallelepiped figures!!
La colpa di non saper scindere,
scinderti da ciò che per me non è altro che
pura felicità disinteressata.
Nell’accettazione non c’è azione,
che possa riesumare quel tuo clone:
quello vero, quello bravo,
lo stesso con cui ogni tanto ancora parlo.
Ancora oggi mi salvo me la cavo.
E quel mio clone, un po’ coglione:
Quello che fa sempre un gran trambusto
Non fa al caso giusto
For a good chunk of my life I have felt worth-less—that is, repeated a lie to myself that I am unworthy of love therefore true happiness; that my past transgressions and failures in life rendered me worth less of an existence. I’m not sure how or why I’ve perpetuated this lie, other than the sentiment being a recurring theme for those of us who struggle with addiction and alcoholism. This lie has served zero purpose other than to push people away and perpetuate a cycle of unhappiness. Thank goodness my wife saw fit to steamroll through the nonsense and love me anyway. She has never let me feel unloved, quite the opposite, she’s helped me feel bathed in it! With her, I get to experience these rich moments of pure happiness, which give me strength to get through the inevitable dark periods. I’m surrounded by these remarkable creatures—human and non human(@the_adventures_of_cora_rose)—whom inspire me constantly and remind me never to give up and to always stay rooted in humility and service. In this beautiful life I get to watch a two legged dog who has conquered unthinkable obstacles, teach a little human being how to walk. And I get to do all of it sober, with a clear mind and a full heart. I’m grateful my higher power saw fit to keep me around to advocate for the less fortunate. As I sit here writing this, with my daughter poking at the screen, I can’t believe I get to be here. To all those who gave me this chance so that I may offer a chance to others—THANK YOU. What a wonderful world we live in....best we not forget it. 😊❤️🙏🏻
